    Why don't you provide an incentive current clients to recommend the service - such as a web hosting credit for each new client they bring in. That way you already make use of the 150k clients you have to bring in more while building long term business with your clients. Probably also more direct to have someone you know recommend a service than one of the man online ads (though they still work)

    There are various places you can promote your affiliate program. Set up a good affiliate page outlining the profits your clients can make. Provide tools such as keyword, articles, videos and training resources. Also get active on some local web hosting forums...man individuals on these forums have their own web hosting review sites. can pm you the web hosting forum, you might already know it...it's another active community like WF

      Thank you Ben, yeah that sounds like a good Idea in using the current clients. I am seeing at other ways to increase there membership. Possible offline ideas as well, or building a free website and use the hosting on the back end.

    From what I see Youtube is by far one of the best sites to use to get your name out their and promote products and services. It's easy to create a Youtube video, just use Windows Movie Maker which comes standard with pretty much any windows computer nowadays. I'm not sure what video production software comes with Macs but I know they have a program as well. It doesnt have to be long, just make sure it captures the viewer and makes them want to check it out.

    Increase the commission percentage. That is going to attract more affiliates.
